After 42 games the Columbus Blue Jackets probably wish they could start over. With an NHL worst 27 points, they host the Phoenix Coyotes Friday night in their first home game after firing their head coach. As SB Nation's Jackets Cannon notes, it is a chance to start over with a strong second half and build towards a better 2012-13:

With 42 games officially in the books, it seemed like a good a time as any to look at the compiled scoring chances and figure out who the Jackets' best and worst players have been at even strength, the power play, and shorthanded. The names won't surprise you, but the sheer degrees may be a bit surprising.

Columbus is in the lead for the No. 1 overall draft pick in the NHL Draft, so clearly this second half of the season will be one in which they build for the future.
